From 1 July, 2021, the European Union (EU) will remove the Value Added Tax (VAT) exemption for low value imported goods – that is, goods with a value of up to €22.

As a result, all commercial imports into the EU will be subject to VAT, while all low value imports will require a Formal Customs Declaration.

To help your business understand and prepare for this new regulation, watch our webinar to hear from a panel of international experts.

Hosted by DHL Express and Trans-Tasman Business Circle, you'll hear from international customs experts from the European Commission and DHL Express, with moderation from Austrade.

The panel explains key areas of the changes, including:

  • The specifics of the changes
  • How this will impact your business
  • How you can prepare and minimise impact to your business’ supply chain
